Every time I visit Memphis, it is a must that I stop by the Memphis Pizza Café. They’ve several locations in the city, but I prefer the location on Park Avenue in East Memphis.
The Café Supreme is my favorite pie: we’re talkin’ a thin crust topped with mozzarella, Canadian bacon, pepperoni, beef, sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Nom! Pair it with a local brew from Ghost River or a bottle of Texas’s finest Shiner Bock and you’re about to have one hell of a party in your mouth.
Memphis Pizza Café also boasts an impressive selection of salads and sandwiches. Try the chef’s salad or the blackened chicken sandwich if you’re looking for an alternative to MPC’s usual fare.
The staff is seemingly comprised of University of Memphis seniors; they’re a rowdy, frat-house bunch and they’re a whole lot of fun. Make sure to tip these guys when you see them.
It’s unfortunate that I’m only able to hit up Memphis Pizza Café once a year (or twice, if I’m lucky). It’s a great establishment with a killer vibe, awesome staff, and the best pizza in Memphis.
